Manchester Unity Credit Union Ltd is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority,

Reg No 213401

Credit Unions in the Oddfellows

They were started in the Midlands  in 1991 and grew until membership in 2001 was 180

They were followed by North London in 1994 with approximately  40 members but no growth by 2001

Yorkshire started with a savings group 1997. By this time the regulator, the Registrar of Friendly Societies was taking more interest and a two year training programme was undertaken leading up to a two hour interview with a representative of the registrar. They were finally registered in January 1999.

Late in 1999 Government announced that credit unions would come under the Financial Services Authority and

with the increase in legislation which followed it became apparent that the three credit unions could not survive individually.

Talks took place between the credit unions and the Board of the Oddfellows to seek their sponsorship which resulted in Manchester Unity Credit Union Ltd coming into being on 1st September 2001, with a common bond covering England, Scotland and Wales.

Membership today has passed the 600 mark and the Credit Union has its own administrator based in Manchester.
